Hi to all and most believers believe that the Body of Christ is Covenant related , and can they prove it , I say that they can NOT . Paul in Eph 2 , says that we are NOT covenant bound . Eph 1:4 , say that " According as He has CHOSEN/ELECTED us in Him before the foundation of the world ." In 2 Tim 1:9 Who hath saved us and elected with an Holy election , not according to to our WORKS , but according to His own purpose and grace , which was given us in Christ BEFORE the world began . My conclusion are several ; #1 , That we were forknown or ELECTED to Christ BEFORE the foundation of the world . #2 , So , AGES or Dispensations were BEFORE Covenants ? #3 , But , also that there was and AGE or Dispensation of Angelic beings , before He made the Universe .
